Two to three tropical cyclones may enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) next month, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Thursday, Oct. 28.

These weather disturbances will be named “Odette,” “Paolo” and “Quedan” once each enters the country’s monitoring area, weather specialist Ariel Rojas said.


“Kadalasan ay tumatama ang mga bagyo sa November sa gitnang bahagi ng ating bansa, sa Southern Luzon, sa Visayas at sa may Northern Mindanao (Cyclones in November usually hit the central part of the country, particularly in Southern Luzon, in the Visayas and in Northern Mindanao),” Rojas said.

“Meron ding mga bagyo na nagre-recurve, or hindi tumatama sa kalupaan at bumabalik patungo sa hilagang bahagi ng Western North Pacific (There are also cyclones that recurve, or do not hit the landmass and return to the northern part of the Western North Pacific),” he added.

The weather specialist urged people living along the possible path of the cyclones to prepare in advance

“Kailangan maghanda ‘yung mga nakatira sa Southern Luzon, Visayas at Mindanao para sa mga paparating na bagyo dahil doon nga usually dumadaan ang mga bagyo (Those living in Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao need to prepare for the upcoming cyclones because that is where they usually pass),” Rojas said.

Based on the latest weather bulletin, the northeast monsoon or “amihan” would continue to prevail over Luzon.

Cloudy skies with light rains may affect Cagayan Valley, Aurora, Quezon, Bulacan, and Rizal due to amihan.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains may be experienced Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.

Meanwhile, Visayas and Mindanao may have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.
